Back in May, I threw myself a birthday dinner party and invited some of my long time, good friends. We'd met through our love of art, and even though our art endeavors have gone different directions over the last 20 years or so, we still have a love of each other.
They collaborated on a charm bracelet for my 60th, with pieces charmingly filled with memories of our times together and of my favorite things.
There is sea glass (one of my obsessions), a heart signifying family, diacrylic glass from a group project we did, birthstones for my kids, and see the bakery stand? I love to serve cupcakes on a tiered stand, not just on a plate.
A vine for my garden, a bird for Birdsong, a mermaid for my love of the ocean, and even charms for my doggies.
My friends found yorkie, doodle, and golden retriever charms for the bracelet. And a Disney castle!!
It was a thoughtful gift from friends who know me well and who I am lucky to have.
Thank you, guys!!
I'll leave you with a few photos of the table before the group arrived.
